Diversity Spotlight Thursday is hosted by Aimal at Bookshelves & Paperbacks! Every Thursday, I’ll be spotlighting a Diverse book.
I’ve seen a lot of Diversity bloggers talk about how underwhelmed they were with EVERYTHING LEADS TO YOU by Nina Lacour. While this wasn’t exactly the most exciting book I’ve ever read, I still enjoyed it.
A wunderkind young set designer, Emi has already started to find her way in the competitive Hollywood film world.
Emi is a film buff and a true romantic, but her real-life relationships are a mess. She has desperately gone back to the same girl too many times to mention. But then a mysterious letter from a silver screen legend leads Emi to Ava. Ava is unlike anyone Emi has ever met. She has a tumultuous, not-so-glamorous past, and lives an unconventional life. She’s enigmatic…. She’s beautiful. And she is about to expand Emi’s understanding of family, acceptance, and true romance.
In all honesty, yes, this book is kind of forgettable. I read this in late 2016 and I really can’t tell you a whole lot about it other than I liked Emi, didn’t care for Ava, and there was some antiques involved. But having said that, I do remember enjoying the book while I was reading it. Not every book is going to stick to your ribs when you finish it. Some are just meant to be enjoyed in the moment, and this book definitely fills that definition.
Emi felt like that best friend you love but want to shake because they keep going back to the same person who clearly doesn’t deserve them. You find yourself rooting for her to just move on and cheer when she finally does.
If you’re looking for something that’s a little fluffy and tinge sad, this is the book for you.
